Summer brings a whole new array of beautiful study spots to enjoy — here are the best places to learn while enjoying the lazy beauty of a Madison summer. Also, tell us your favorites in the survey at the bottom for your chance to win some Badger swag.
Memorial Union Terrace
Memorial Union Terrace is the perfect spot to spend the warm summer days. Grab your textbook and your friends and spend some time enjoying the outdoors. During your study breaks, grab some food at the restaurants inside the Union.
Take off your shoes and feel the grass between your toes on Bascom Hill. On the sunniest days it may be hard to find a spot. Don’t forget your sunscreen!
The Student Activity Center (SAC)
If it’s a rainy day, a place to spend some time inside would be at the Student Activity Center (SAC). Located on the third and fourth floors of 333 East Campus Mall, it conveniently has desktop computers and printing services.
Outside at a coffee shop on State Street
UW-Madison doesn’t lack coffee shops, especially on State Street. This is a hot spot for not only students, but also for other Madison residents. No matter what the day of the week, a coffee shop is the perfect place to spend your morning before it gets too hot. Outdoor seating provides the perfect spot to read, write or catch up on vocabulary for your next quiz.
No matter the season, Picnic Point is always a beautiful and relaxing spot to study. You won’t get any Internet access out there, so bring a textbook to read or some worksheets to complete, or simply enjoy your study break in a peaceful spot.
The Discovery Building (WID)
Bringing the outdoors inside, this air-conditioned building has plenty of beautiful spots. And with two restaurants, it’s a convenient place to hang out all day. The greenery inside with make you feel like you’re outside.
